welcome to risley

Welcome to Risley Avenue Primary School. We are situated in Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey, close to Bruce Castle Park and Bruce Castle Museum, on The Roundway.

The school lies within the Bruce Castle Conservation Area and is a Local Listed Building of Merit built in 1913. Located over a large site we have our own school garden, which our children enjoy using to grow vegetables and plants. Over the years we have invested in the structure of the school; In September 2012 a dedicated food technology classroom was opened. In 2014 the school gained a dedicated art block and both playgrounds were updated with new climbing frames and table-tennis equipment. In September 2018 a new, welcoming school reception entrance was created.

The school is a three form entry Primary School with an Early Years Foundation Stage which comprises two Reception Classes and a Nursery which can facilitate up to 103 part-time places and a 2 year old provision which can facilitate up to 24 part-time places.  We serve a very diverse community and our school population, pupils and staff, reflects our community; pupils refer to our school as a “Rainbow School”. Our children speak over 40 different languages and come from a range of cultures, religions and backgrounds, which we respect and value. It is a happy and stimulating learning environment where every child is encouraged and supported to achieve their very best. 

Mission Statement

Here at Risley we challenge and support every pupil to achieve their full potential in an atmosphere of respect.

We prepare our children through irresistible learning opportunities to grow into responsible, respectful, independent citizens who are equipped and confident to take their place in the wider world. 

Parents, governors, staff and children in this learning community strive every day to make Risley a vibrant, inclusive, safe and happy school.  We aim to be remembered by all who come here as a place where.......learning is at the heart of living.
